Typhoon is a 3D engine designed for the real-time and photorealistic visualization of landscapes.

Currently, the engine technology is mainly focused on the simulation and rendering of terrains, water and underwater environments. The rendering engine fully exploits the capabilities of high-end graphics cards exposed by the DirectX9 API.

The very best real-time outdoor engine out there.
Awesome engineering product by a one man only!
Best thing in Typhoon is the water rendering. It delivers outstanding underwater renderings and a realistic surface at realtime framerates.

Support is very good in case one has a beautiful girlfriend. That's why i gave 4 stars out of 5.
